Software development is a complex process required much planning, requirement analysis, implementation and testing. You can develop the perfect software with full functionality, except it goes all the testing and quality analysis. So companies must retain control over Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC), while developing software. No software is perfect and with full functionality unless it passes all tests. A software development firm focusing on Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) produce the most effective, functional and business-critical software that can help a company in the long term.
The software development life cycle (SDLC) is an established framework used by all companies developing software through the understanding and development of effective information systems and software. While the development of the software life cycle, many versions and each version has its own plus points and weaknesses, but all versions have the same steps or activities that are discussed below;
Phase 1 - Project Planning
Project planning is the first phase of a software development . It is an important factor in determining the success or failure of any software project. In this phase the client gives the details and concepts of their software and we plan the requirement of resources, time & budget of the proposed development.
A good project planning will eliminate many of the mistakes that would otherwise be made, and reduce the overall time required to complete the project. Most professional software developers plan a development using a series of steps generally referred to as the software development life cycle (SDLC). A number of stages defined, and in the specific activities that take place within each stage.
Phase 2 - User Requirements Analysis
The requirements analysis stage is concerned with capturing the requirements of the software. During this stage, the problem is defined so that the clear understanding of the requirement can be gained. The final output of this phase is a formal requirements document (Software Requirement Specification SRS ), which aims to freeze the requirements at this point and will serve as input to the design phase.
Phase 3 - Program Design
The design stage is concerned with design of the software. A solution to the problem is designed by defining a logical sequence of steps that will achieve each of the stated system objectives. Things to keep in mind are things like quality, flexibility etc. The final output of this phase is a formal design document (Software Design Document (SDD), which aims to freeze the design at this point and will serve as input to the coding phase. The user interface will also be designed during this stage.
Phase 4 - Program Coding or Implementation
This phase is also known as implementation stage, where the algorithms are translated into a programming language, and tends to be the longest phase of the development life cycle. In this phase we are using different programming language to write the program. The output of this phase is typically the library, executables and User Manuals and additional software documentation .
Phase 5 - Testing and Integration
The objective of software testing is to find any errors or bugs in the program, these errors can be eliminated with a process known as “debugging”, and as far as is reasonably practicable, should be sufficiently rigorous to ensure that the software will function as expected under all anticipated circumstances. Unit testing is done on units and integration testing is done by units and package together with other packages or units and testing them all together.
Phase 6 - Evaluation
Installing the prototype of the product and client evaluates the product. If the customer requires modification in the product he suggests it and we do it within a very short span of time.
Phase 7 – Operating and maintaining the system
Once the software development and any necessary user training has been completed, it will be necessary to monitor the performance of the system overtime time to ensure that it is behaving as expected. The system will need to be maintained, and it need to be upgraded from time to time to handle evolving user needs or to cope with new problems. In future, the system will no longer be able to serve the demands of a growing number of users, take advantage of advanced hardware technology, or adapt to a constantly changing environment. At this point of time system will need to be decommissioned and replaced by a new system.
